The team at the crime scene.

Professional polo player Billy Keats is out riding his horse and ends up being decapitated, killing him instantly which prompts the Hawaii Five-0 team led by Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarretto investigate.

At the crime scene, Medical Examiner Dr. Max Bergman shows Steve and Detective Danny Williams some garroting wire tied between two poles which means that the death is a homicide.

The team investigates and discover that Jake Madsen, one of Keats's friends was kidnapped ten years previously but young Jake managed to escape before a ransom was paid.

Furthermore, the kidnappers were all convicted but one, Randy Thorpe was released with Thorpe stating that he was paid by an unknown party to plant a bomb in his car.

The team soon realize that Amanda Madsen, Keats's lover and also Jake's mother was the real target of the explosion. She is later brought to hospital but dies under mysterious circumstances with Steve soon discovering that Jake suffocated his mother out of revenge because Jake resented her for having an affair and also because Amanda was against paying the ransom when Jake was kidnapped ten years previously.

Meanwhile, Steve meets his mother, Doris McGarrett who claims she shot at the floor was due to a struggle between her and Wo Fat.

Steve later reveals to Danny that he does not believe her.

Doris meanwhile, secretly recovers a microfiche from a cavity under McGarrett's home.
